Interdisciplinary Program.

Coordinator: E.C. Dalrymple-Alford, Department of Psychology, Ext. 3510.

This program of study is a co-operative effort of the Department of Computing and Information Science, Department of Psychology, and Department of Sociology and Anthropology. Students in this program will be advised by the program coordinator.
